Epigenetic Memory Phenomenon

Epigenetic Memory Phenomenon Each cell type has a specific epigenome which is configured by the aforementioned alterations in chromatin level DNA methylation histone modifications and small non coding RNAs The combination and interaction of these alterations form the structure of chromatin In the case of pluripotent cells the configuration of chromatin is open and not compacted allowing post translational modifications during cell differentiation The switching from pluripotent to specialized cells is conducted according to the form of chromatin domains close to the transcription start sites TSS of genes which will determine the expression suppression of genes associated with development 19 20 As it was mentioned before induced pluripotent cell lines collect many aberrations in a genetic and epigenetic level during reprogramming These aberrations along with the pre existing maintained epigenetic markers of somatic cells can modify the epigenome and transcriptome of iPS cells When this modified epigenome is inherited by the iPSCs it is called epigenetic memory 6 21 22 Although iPSCs are pretty similar to ESCs there seem to be some small differences in transcription and epigenetic level These changes have been revealed from several analyses in the DNA methylation level of iPSCs and specifically in the cytosine methylation of CpG nucleotides
